Egypt's Sisi urges Palestinians to unite, co-exist with Israel

Egypt's Sisi urges Palestinians to unite, co-exist with Israel”

In a busy diplomatic day Monday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu met with world leaders on the eve of his United Nations General Assembly speech Tuesday - among them Egyptian President Abdel Fatah a-Sisi, the first time the two have met in a public manner. Pictures of the meeting showed the two men seemingly conversing well with each other.

Additionally, a secret summit held in Aqaba, Jordan - initiated by then-US Secretary of State John Kerry - reportedly occurred in January 2016, and included Sisi, Jordan's King Abdullah and Netanyahu.

Sisi addressed the General Assembly hours after he met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

It appears that the path to influencing Israel's foreign policy goes through the US Jewish community's leadership forum.

At the start of their meeting, Mr Trump was keen to stress that achieving Middle East peace was a priority for his administration.

Trump is also to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas later this week.

"I think Israel would like to see it (Middle East peace), and I think the Palestinians would like to see it".

On August 27, sources said the Trump administration chose to "reprogramme" $65.7 million in fiscal year 2017 Foreign Military Financing funds and $30 million in fiscal year 2016 Economic Support Fund funds.

"So we're working very hard on it".

"Historically, people say it can't happen".

Official presidential spokesman Alaa Youssef said that the two officials discussed ways to revive the peace process, with Sisi underlining the role Egypt is playing in resuming negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis in order to reach a fair and comprehensive settlement to their conflict.

Egyptian state press said the NY meetings would further reconciliation.

Mr El Sisi also held meeting with New York-based and other American groups that have a strong interest in developments in the region.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he believed "we really have a chance" to make peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
